Wow - what a performance - that's a massive % of the world's population who won't be watching Sunday's final :)

That partnership is about as good as it gets, stunning from Hales and Buttler
I don't recall seeing such an emphatic batting performance with so little risk taking and theatrics. Proper batting.

To bascially scor at more than 10 an over from start to finish without losing a wicket is pretty impressive.

Wonder if Sky will show the final on Sky One (or even share the rights) as they have done with previous criket finals.

Sadly the tournament may finish as it started, with the rain playing far too big a part! Horrid forecast for Sunday (and Monday) it seems

T20 World Cup wins for India since the IPL began: 0

Just saying. :p:eek::unsure:

And maybe the Blast is better than the Midweek Evening League standard that some have made it out to be.

Yep. The Blast and The Hundred have been significant proving grounds for existing and emerging talent this year. I struggle to understand how some cricket fans keep putting them down.

well because one of them has completely ruined the rest of county cricket calendar at the heart of summer (and removed test cricket for a month too) and was completely un needed, pandering to the need of making more money and making it all about an unnecessary 4th format for those with no attention span

the blast however has always been excellent and underrated :)

IMHO :p
